Let it be known from this day forward: Amy Adams is the new Queen of Karaoke.

The American Hustle star was filmed belting out a tune from the hit Broadway musical "Wicked" at a gay bar here in L.A.

Adams chose "Defying Gravity" to sing to the crowd, which is anotoriously difficult song to master. Based solely on the video and the crowd's reaction, Adams nailed it. Instinct Magazine claims that the bar in question is Oil Can Harry's in Studio City.

And then, a few days after her epic karaoke turn, Adams picked up the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. Pretty good week for her, I'd say.
